October 1 – Model A’s in Apple Hill – Drop by Apple Pantry Farm on Sunday from 12pm-2pm to for a FREE showing of restored 1928-1931 Model A’s. While you are there, go ahead and try Apple Pantry’s yummy apple fritters. Mmmm…

October 27-31 – Haunted Nature Trail at Grandpa’s Cellar – the usual Nature Trail turns haunted for the last five days of October. Kids of all ages are invited on this tour. When finished, stop in at the Country Store for all things “apple.”
October 29-30 – Syrup Tasting at Denver Dan’s Apple Patch – here you can sample a variety of syrups…over ice cream! Once you have tasted them all, vote for your favorite.
